[audio]The Arabization of North Africa - Afropop Worldwide
This program vividly evokes the Arab conquest of much of North Africa between the 7th and 11th century. The story begins in the early days of Islam when Romans and Berbers held sway in the region. The initial Arab forays were relatively superficial, but lasting transformation came with the sweep of the Bani Hilal clan starting in the 10th century. Of course, we cannot know what music sounded like so long ago, but music helps evoke these dramatic times...

[audio]Africa and the Blues - Afropop Worldwide
In recent years, CDs, concert tours, and even careers have been based on the notion that the blues has "roots" in Africa. Cultural Anthropologist Gerhard Kubik's has been recording music in Africa since 1959, and spent long periods in the American south in the 1980s and 90s. His book Africa and the Blues has gained recognition as the most serious and penetrating examination of the subject. This episode in our Hip Deep series delves into Kubik's recording archive and explores his key findings...

Fluttering bluesy flutes, keening vocal melodies and bubbling percussion rhythms are strong elements in Fulani music, but the sounds are as varied as the deserts, forests, mountains, and riverside towns the Fulbe have made their homes...

When Sierra Leone gained independence in 1961, Freetown swayed to the beguiling, breezy lilt of palm wine guitar and danced to the funky pop of Geraldo Pino and the Heartbeats. Once a center of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, Sierra Leone became an improbable amalgamation of indigenous peoples and repatriated Africans freed from slavery. Thirty years of political and economic disintegration led to a horrific civil war that claimed tens of thousands of victims and created a generation of maimed b...

At the time of Trinidad's Independence, the Afro-Caribbean political elite of the day sought to enshrine calypso as the country's national music, but new genres have emerged, from the st...
